Oil prices initially jumped after Russia started its invasion of Ukraine a couple of weeks ago. That rise in price also pushed the value of oil stocks higher as investors piled in hoping for profits. Since then, that price has dropped more than 20% but is rising again today.

Let’s go over what this means for oil stocks today below!
